What is woodturning?
The craft of woodturning can be traced back as far as 1000 BC and has been practiced ever since by both professional and amateur woodturners. Not only a rewarding and relaxing hobby, woodturning is a widely respected artform that gives rise to beautiful and unusual pieces of woodturning.
With woodturning lathes, tools and timbers more readily available than ever before, and the number of clubs, associations and literature dedicated to woodturning increasing year after year, woodturning is one of the most practiced crafts around the world.
One of the many pleasures of woodturning is that satisfying results can be obtained with little experience, but to truly master this craft can take a lifetime.
Woodturning creates a very close and intimate relationship with wood, and it is for this reason why few people know wood as well as woodturners!
In addition, woodturning encourages analysis of the aesthetics of each turned object. For these and many other reasons, woodturning is an exciting and challenging craft.
